It's morning. Yes it is after eight o'clock and I work in the home office. Yes, I'm still tired and just go to shower to go. This sound reaches my ear, which I dream at night: A dull mixture of DING and PLING signals to me: You have mail!
At the same moment that I think about what day is today (iCal, without you I would also lose the feeling for time and space), a small pop-up window shows the sender, subject and the first words.
Fear of the next DONG
I then know if it's more like a church or PLING like an ultrasound smartphone when it makes good news. As soon as I read XING, it makes DONG.
The naked fear creeps up on me and tells my head that I'm going to get upset - or is it the other way around? I'm still tired and not ready for the outside world when she attacks me ruthlessly.
Wutanfällle about uncreative dreistigkeiten
I click wildly through the area in Safari until I am in the XING rider from Hootsuite (yes, I have a quick look at what else is going on) and see the disaster opening its way: I have a contact request.
I know exactly what will be in there - and the choice is small. The uncreativity is so high that I go on to regularly get tantrums for the audacity sent to me.
Assertive business offers
Just like NOW: My tea is still warm, I have just the first accomplishments of the day and stumbled back from the first tasks back into the house. Black Shadow on Gray Ground: Fits!
I either do not read a test, an explanation in which group I am a member or presumptuous business offers or reasons, why I am an interesting contact.
You do not have to be there everywhere!
At the beginning I thought I was schizophrenic that I wouldn’t be able to see it myself. Today I am seized with cold anger, which goes away with a short click on the cross.
On some days, when DONG often does, I am considering logging out. You do not have to be everywhere. That's why I turned off Facebook because it annoyed me.
Ego booster thanks to event invitations
But somehow I like it so synonymous: This felt 100 event charges / day increases my self-worth in immeasurable. How important I am when I am invited to special events.
I do not want to miss that either - and reach for the tea mug, sip it slowly and start the day freshly showered again in the Social Web: Mostly there are then very beautiful PLINGs.
